"In planning matings, I'm always trying to factor in
population genetics. G1 Goldmine's VGS Score not only
reveals a genetic affinity, but explains whether a sire is
working with a particular strain beyond contingency."
-Rob Keck of Crestwood Farms, Kentucky
What is the Ventura GeoScore?
The Ventura GeoScore is a key part of the G1Goldmine thoroughbred
pedigree software program. It measures the strength of a cross between
two ancestors (for instance Danzig and Deputy Minister) by comparing how
many Stakes Winners the cross should have gotten (based on a complex
and carefully calibrated mathematical formula) to how many Stakes Winners
it actually got.
When the number of Stakes Winners predicted for a cross is equal to the
number of Stakes Winner it actually gets, the cross will get a score of 1.00.
But if the cross outperforms how well it ought to have done it gets a score
over 1.00, and if it underperforms how well it ought to have done it gets
a score under 1.00.
Higher Ventura GeoScores should be sought by Breeders, lower Ventura
(Note: The Ventura GeoScore based on Stakes Winners is only available to
purchasers of the G1Goldmine Program, though a free demo with a more
limited version is downloadable from the Goldmine home page.)
